|Yeah, score another one for The Far Side. Did you see the one entitled "Saturday Night at the Crypt," with the Mummy onstage and the audience shouting, "Unravel, unravel"! Larsen was a true innovator. |
Is anyone here aware that Steve Ditko (co-creator of Spider-Man) seems to have been Rand inspired, at least in some of his later works. I have a copy of one of his comic books--a quality paperback, entitled STATIC, in which he writes, "Business, industry are the providers of mankind's, life's survival needs," and then characterizes the anti-capitalists as spouting a bunch of naysaying bromides, as they reply:
"No! No! The opposite! They despoil, pollute nature! Gulp! Poison consumers! Enslave workers! Commercials corrupt the innocent...weak willed... Cause dog-eat-dog competition...Pander to the selfish! Create show off superiority, possession superiority. Disrupt life with ever changing products. Too many selections, choices, decisions...insult little people. Life was better before canned goods, frozen dinners and gas guzzlers.
